Does Obama Think He Can Get Blood From a Stone?

Leasheryn/Lady Willpower 2012/12/28 01:50:13

Considering retail sales over the Christmas Season showed a sharp decline, where does Obama think funding for his crushing taxes is going to come from? If no one has the money to spend, retailer and big corporations are inable to make anywhere close to the profit they require to achieve Obama's goals.

Let's be realistic: when there is no money flowing through the economic system, there are no funds to pay toward a hefty tax bill. Instead of burdening the country with more taxes, why does the President so adamently refuse to take the part of the American people by giving them relief against the looming fiscal cliff?

Many seem to forget: Obama and the Democrats are in charge here. They continue to hold the 2/3 majority in government yet they act as though they have no control over what's going on in Washington. By playing the blame game and refusing to negotiate over the plans presented by the minority party (the Republicans), they prove themselves to be too weak to manage the country. They have in effect shown themselves incapable and inadequate to maintain the majority they have held for more than 5 years.

When will Obama quit the petty squabbling and put the American people FIRST? We are tired of suffering and want to think there's a pot of gold at the end of this dismal rainbow.

    Obama does not want to do the things that are going to improve the economy of this nation he is satisfied with making thing sound good. First he asked for cut in spending and a $800 billion in new taxes. Then he changed too $1.6 trillion in no taxes and while talking about cuts he is asking for another $200 billion for stimulus.
    Too top all this off he has cut permits to drill for oil by 36% and at the same time urged the EPA to make more regulation that kill more jobs and send jobs off shore. While doing this the left applaud him and voted him back into office. For every dollar we get in taxes he is spending 40% above that and he is asking to do more.
    The President knows very well what he is asking is never going to pass in the House. Now we have Reid criticizing the House when he has not passed a budget in 4 years and the President has allowed him to get away with it. I have seen him on TV several times today and not on News agency has said a word about the fact of what Reid has been doing over the last 4 years.

    his plan is to destroy America, not Save it, look at his record not his Rhetoric only when people wake up to the Facts will change happen in America, I expect to lose everything I've worked for my entire life over His Communist Policies, and probably not have time to recover before Death. I can only wait like everyone else, to see what comes Next.

    I agree. I never listen to rhetoric or the lame street media. I base my opinions on what I see happening around me. Since the election, there have been 6 businesses (businesses that have been around for years) that are closing down. There are 2 more preparing to close within the next few weeks. When the democrats and the news report that the economy is getting better and I see 6 businesses closing their doors in my neighborhood, I have to conclude that "going out of business" signs do not equal a strengthening economy.

    The free stuff has to run out sooner or later. They just don't seem to understand that nothing in life is free. They are paying for their "free stuff" through higher taxes.

    No, I haven't read it. I will have to.

    We have to get rid of all the old coots who have been in there for decades and change the ones we do put in frequently. If they are not doing the job they were sent there to do, they should get voted out.

    That fits as much today as it did in 55 BC. It would be nice to see a budget from the democrats again. I'm sure if anyone says the word budget to them, they would get a glazed look in their eyes and wonder what a budget is.

    Its all about him and his ego. He could care less about the citizens, even if they are progressive. As long as he can say or claim he did something then he is happy. Otherwise its everybody else who is at fault. Be they Conservative or Progressive. Republican or Democrat. Libertarian or Atheist.

    The democrats have something against people who work hard and are successful. They can't stand it. They don't seem to understand what hard work is and want everything to fall into their laps without putting any effort into getting it.

    That's part of it, but on the part of the government class it's much more cynical... the producers, those people who by and large work hard and are successful, are unlikely to vote for Democrats and support their foolish programs.

    Lets Just Accept The FACT That Obama " WANTS AMERICA TO FAIL " !
    Obama " WANTS " America To Go Over The " Obama Cliff " !

    We had an election . The IGNORANT put The Great Destroyer Of Nations backed by The Usual Suspects ( among them , George Soros & Co. ).back into power . Soros has already put into play , A Plan For " ONE WORLD CURRENCY " ( like the EURO , only worse )

    He NEEDS America To Fail , In Order To Usher In " A New World Order " .
